I have following problem:
A user "xy" shouldn't have any rights to a table,
but needs data from the content of the table.
My idea was to setup a PL/PGSQL procedure to fetch the
data from the table, so that the user only is allowed to
access the procedure. I also tried using a SQL function,
but this doesn't work, too.
Working with views may be a solution - or are e.g. cursors
in pl/pgsql the solution ??
The problem i run into is, that although i can read the data
and return it, I can not return more than one row each
function call. Is it possible to return a whole resultset ?
My last try was:
drop function test(int);
create function test(int) returns table_name as '
select * from table_name where column_name1>= $1
order by column_name1;
' language sql;
select * from test(1) ;
The pl/pgsql variant:
drop function test();
CREATE FUNCTION test() RETURNS text AS '
select * into target from table_name ;
return target.column_name1 || target.column_name2;
' LANGUAGE plpgsql;
But in PL/pgsql i am not able to return a cursor or something like this
and I am not able to return more than one row.
So i have got 2 maybe solutions, but none of them works.
Has anyone a hint, how to "hide" original tables and making their data
selectable to some users ? The result really should be a
select a.* , b.* from a,b where a.state!="imgonewild" ....
Thanks in advance,
